How common is vaginismus?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 12/13/2017

Statistics have shown that about 2 in every 1,000 women have vaginismus. However, this figure could be higher, as gathering reliable information is difficult due to shame and embarrassment of the patient, or because some women are given an incorrect diagnosis and therefore are never properly treated. Moreover, it is estimated that 54% of the patients diagnosed with vaginismus are aged 26-35.
